Yay! It’s finally here, the premiere of TW-drama Marry Me, or Not this Sunday November 1st. It’s only fitting that the drama got a Sunday night prime airing slot since the drama reunites the leads from the last big hit Sunday night drama which was Office Girls back in 2011. It was only four years ago but feels like a lifetime, at least for me. Marry me stars Roy Qiu and Alice Ke as a bickering couple, Alice and Joanne Tseng as best friends turned rivals, and Harry Chang as the guy who ruined the girls’ friendship in the first place.
I knew there was an intended two couple set up in the drama, but I totally didn’t pay attention to the early news articles because the names ought to have tipped me off to something that I just recently realized – Roy and Joanne’s characters are siblings in the drama! That means there really won’t be able couple swapping feint, incest is so not a TW-drama thing. That’s a relief, not the no incest part, but the lack of romantic complications is much appreciated since all I want to watch is Roy and Alice light the screen on fire, with a bonus treat of Joanne and Harry finally connecting as adults after a missed chance back in college.
